    Lmao, Bron and his FT. :rofl:

    Anyway, Rose stepped up his game in the 4th to destroy the Cs. I always notice how Rose tries to get his team in the game in the first half (usually resulting in his rather unspectacular stats in the 1st half), and then just goes beast mode in the 4th quarter.

    Rose = best PG in the league. Come at me.

    Whoa, that's a pretty controversial opinion.... considering he is the reigning MVP. :rolleyes:

    Depends...he's the best player at the point guard position but he's not really a pure point guard. I think Nash or Kidd are the best pure point guards.

    You'd think so, but you'd be surprised at how many people think CP3 or Rondo are better. :confused:

    And MVP doesn't mean best player. Rose won it last year but he was definitely not the best player.

    I think the best 'traditional' PG is Rondo.

    Who was better than Rose in the regular season? He deserved that award IMO. He carried the Bulls to the best record in the league, fair enough they probably wouldn't have had the best record if they were in the west though...

    Yeah as a pure point guard I would say Rondo is better, it's between him and CP3.

    Rondo just has lots of options. Put him on a team without KG, Ray and Pierce and he'll fade. Doesn't hold a candle to Nash, Kidd and Paul (forgot about him).

    Although this year, not much to say about KG, Ray or Pierce tbh

    Boston have been hopeless so far :argh:

    What I meant was that the MVP doesn't necessarily translate to best player. As much as I hate to say it, the best player in the NBA is Lebron. Rose is in the top 5 but I don't think he's in the discussion for best player yet.

    That's all I really meant to say. I didn't try to imply that he wasn't the best performing in the regular season last year (maybe I did imply that though), but he's not the best.

    Yeah as a pure point guard I would say Rondo is better, it's between him and CP3.
    Oh yeah, forgot about CP3. But Rose has a habit of taking a dump on the best PGs when he plays against them. It happened against CP3 and recently against Rondo.

    Top 5 PGs IMO:
    Rose
    CP3
    Rondo
    Westbrook
    D-Will

    Is that the same as point spreads like you bet Knicks +8.5 vs Heat -8.5 sort of thing ? I do that for NFL but never bet on NBA games only over/under season wins and conference/finals winners

    What are you talking about? Rondo is definitely one of the best passers in the nba.

    D. Rose isn't a top 5 player, top 10 for sure, top 5 no.

    Wade
    Lebron
    D. Howard
    Kobe
    Kevin Durant

    ^ Those guys up there are better than Rose in my opinion. Additionally Rose and Westbrook put up near identical numbers (or at least did so last season), and for the most part it would be anathema to proclaim Westbrook anywhere near a top 5 player.

    Interesting stuff on illegal defense by Celtics vs Kobe. It's in English. Yeah Celtics have always been one of my least favourite teams. Smh at Garnett and Pierce with their thug attitude.
